say well, maybe there's a problem with arrogance and science needs to be addressed. we would have better science and better scientists, and a better society if we could deal with that your and what are the structural reasons for it, and how might we mitigate that? that would be my question. i think some of that has already been addressed as a competitive nature. but the other would i want to throughout his height. -- hype. i think the human genome project is a wonderful example of something that was very important and very much overhyped. so we see that all the time. so that would be my challenge. sins are bad, and we all have them, and how do we mitigate them is what my question would be. >> i love the idea of a arrogance mitigation project. we can discuss how that might look on the ground, but, you know, as you are speaking, such -- given what stuart writes about certainty and uncertainty and ignorance in his book, and, i think taking it back to the hubris aspect, one of the deepest manifestations of arrogance is in the life statements of certainty, that something is exactly thi

political science expert and has done a lot of understanding in terms of venezuela specifically. you know, one of the things we say often in politics, you can't beat something with nothing, right? and so the opposition may have problems with the way things are going forward, but what is the realistic alternative that they have in the current environment and to the extent that they really want to contest this, what can they do to move forward? >> well, first, let me echo what charles said. it is somewhat intimidating to be in the room with a lot of you who know and follow venezuela a lot more closely than i do. so i'm going to quote someone who actually knows venezuela as i do, and that's my 8-year-old son. [laughter] he's been, oddly -- because i've been called at all hours of the day and night checking my equal and computer constantly, he's been very obsessed with the health of chavez. the other day, actually on the 10th in the morning, he says how's that president anyway? i said, well, he's still sick, but he's going to be sworn in absentia as president. and he says why don't they just

for command and control. this is the art of military science now. so if you start to pull at that thread, the second, third and fourth order of effects is awfully important, i think, to all of us. so i think it's important to the nation to consider ramifications of looking to someone else to make those decisions. thank you. >> if i might, sir -- >> go ahead. >> i'd like to address one piece of commissioner yaki's remarks, sir, that you referred to us as i independent silos, and i can see how it might appear that way. we are different services, we're structured differently, our service cultures are somewhat different, but believe you me, my peers on the possible here, we work well and cooperatively together. our trial counsel and defense counsel assistance programs leverage each other's experience. our judges train together. we take the best practices that we each identify in our services and try to figure out how best to apply them within the challenges that we face -- not necessarily uniquely, but perhaps differently. so it may not appear that we are acting in a coordinated way, but i c
